Trend Worth Trying: Polka Dot Dresses

10/10/2006 at 04:31 PM ET

As seen in our Would You Wear It gallery, polka dots always have a sweet, retro feel — and combined with swingy skirts and bare necklines, they are the perfect way to keep wearing dresses into fall. We love Eva Longoria’s one-of-a-kind Nanette Lepore dress (left), but since we can’t buy that one, here are some other versions of the trend to try:

For a more work-appropriate version of Eva’s dress, check out these shirtdresses from Nanette Lepore, $320, and Arden B, $128.

If you like a little more support, try a halter version from J. Crew, $250, or XOXO, $94.

To get the look for a steal, try Forever 21, $28.

And the look works on all body types. For plus sizes, try this Donna Ricco halter dress, $148.
